Throwback Thursday: Time Flies. It's True.

By
Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

It's the end of the school year in Montgomery and Howard County, MD. Already?! I know! It brings with it big changes for my little family, a memorable ceremony, emotional flashbacks and quite a few tissues.

On the left is my daughter on her first day of Kindergarten in 2010. It seems like such a long time ago and just like the other day, all at once. What she's holding is a traditional German Zuckertüte (sugar cone) filled with treats and little gifts. I remember my mom bringing it with her that summer. I remember myself wrapping the gifts and filling it and I remember my daughter's joy when she leaped towards me as soon as she got off the bus.

On the right are my daughter and I 6 years later after her 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony (I love that they call it that!), taken today. My daughter is one smart cookie, a straight A student, aspiring violinist and artist and sometimes a Veterinarian, too.

I look at my not-so-little-girl and wonder, how did that happen so fast? And can we please invent a "Slow Down" button, you know, like that "Easy" button? I wonder how much she'll grow and change over the next 3 years.

At this moment, Middle School graduation seems like a long way off. But it's not.. time flies. It's true. Before I know it, I'll be writing about just that.

Hi Andrea Bedard , You're right about time flying. I remember when both of my children were young and now they both have children, one in college.

Middle School.  Oh dear.  Time does fly.  Next thing you know she's going to like boys.
